About Hodierne de Gometz-la-Ferté

Hodierne was also called Hodierne de la Ferté.

Hodierne married Guy I, seigneur de Montlhéry, son of Thibaud "Fille-Etoupe," after 1030, during the reign of Henry I.

Hodierne was our ancestor through two distinct descent lines--one through her son Guy and the other through her daughter Elizabeth, each of whom was independently our ancestor.

2. HODIERNE de Gometz-la-Ferté (-26 Apr ---, bur ---, transferred 1641 to Longpont church). The Historia of Monk Aimon records that "Guidonem", son of "Theobaldus cognomina Filans-stupas, Forestarius [Roberti Regis]", married "dominam de Feritate et de Gommet"[775]. The primary source which confirms her precise parentage has not been identified. The editor of the cartulary of Longpont refers to a history of Longpont written in 1713 which records that "Gui II de Montmorency fils de Thibaud de Montmorency surnommé File-Etoupes seigneur de Bray" [presumed to refer to Guy [I] de Montlhéry] married "Hodierne fille et héritière de Guillaume de Gomintez sénéchal de France seigneur de la Ferté" but does not cite the corresponding primary source[776]. The chronology of her descendants indicates that Hodierne (whose great-granddaughter married in 1104) was much older than Guillaume [II] de Gometz-la-Ferté (probably born in the 1060s). It appears unlikely, therefore, that she was the daughter of Guillaume [I] but was more probably his sister. "Guido de Monte Leterico eiusque uxor Hodierna" donated property to Notre-Dame de Longpont by charter dated to [1061], witnessed by "Wido filius eorum, Adam vicecomes..."[777]. "Guido de Monte Leherico" donated property to Notre-Dame de Longpont, confirmed by "filii mei Milo et Guido et conjux mea Hodierna", by charter dated to [1070][778]. "Guido de Monte Leherico" donated property to Notre-Dame de Longpont, confirmed by "filii mei Milo et Guido et conjux mea Hodierna", by charter dated to [1070][779]. The necrology of Longpont records the death "IX Kal Aug" of "Guido institutor hujus loci. Guido vicecomes; Adalaidis comitissa, uxor; Wido filius eius", a supplementary section adding a further reference to the anniversary of “donni Guidonis senioris hujus loci institutoris et Guidonis comitis filii eius...IX Kal Aug” as well as the anniversary of “donne Hodierne uxoris ipsius Guidonis senioris et Ermensendis de Sancto Galarico filie amborum...VII Kal Apr” with a reference to her visit to Cluny where “beato Hugoni abbati” gave her “calicem...aureum”[780]. The editor of the cartulary of Longpont quotes an inscription in the church of Longpont which records that the body of "Audiernæ...comitissæ Herici Montis...harum ædium fundatricis" was transferred into the church 31 Aug 1641[781].

Hodierna of Gometz was the daughter of Guillame de Gometz Lord of Gometz; wife of Gui I of Montlhéry.
Together with her husband and with the support of the Bishop of Paris Guido in 1061 they founded the Benedictine Priory of Notre-Dame of Longpont-sur-Orge, which they handed over to twenty-two monks from the Abbey of Cluny. Longpont thus became the first branch of the Association of
clunizianischen monastery in the region around Paris. Hodierna gave the Abbey a chalice of Gold 30 Oz and a valuable chasuble.
According to legend Hodierna with her own hands participated in the construction and that she was going to fetch water at a distant fountain, which still had the reputation to cure the fever. One day Hodierne came asking the blacksmith to provide her with an iron bar that would help her to better carry buckets. The blacksmith, influenced by his nasty wife, gives her derisively, a red fire bar. Hodierne is spared any burning. The 'red iron cross' is today preserved at the bottom of the Basilica.
The legend also claims that she cursed the blacksmith and he died soon after.
The Basilique is beautiful, very large, and contained a large number of tombs. Hodierne was buried before the high altar, under a grave which read: Hodierae inclytcae omitisshae erici montis sacrarum harum Aedium fundatricis ossa Sub dio jacentia ab anno millesimo, pro nichaelis Lewis Domni of rocks, hujusce domus priori studio hic translata fuere anno 1651 die ultima mensis augusti.
